Your airline ticket isn’t what it seems to be.
I’m reminded of that whenever I hear from readers like Heidi Fox. Her husband tried to switch his United Airlines ticket from Chicago to Orlando to an earlier flight on the same day, and an airline representative assured him he’d only have to pay a $75 change fee.
But what the rep apparently didn’t say is that Fox’s husband would have to shell out a $744 fare difference, too.
“It was only after he received the emailed receipt that he was made aware of the $744 cost differential,” she says.
